“Cool for the Summer” was written by Lovato with the collaboration of Max Martin, Ali Payami and Savan Kotecha, who also wrote her last hit “Really Don’t Care” featuring Cher Lloyd.

This is a bit silly as the only source that this is happening is a faved tweet.
Nevertheless Demi has been added to the Max Martin discography site.

And charliewalk indeed faved this tweet.

Moved to New Songs section.

It says:

Quote
“Cool for the Summer” was written by Lovato with the collaboration of Max Martin, Ali Payami and Savan Kotecha, who also wrote her last hit “Really Don’t Care” featuring Cher Lloyd.

According Christopher K from 107.9 The End, the song doesn’t sound like anything she’s done before, and he has assured “Wouldn’t be surprised if it’s biggest hit of her career so far!”
The song was recorded on Max Martin’s production studios Wolf Cousins, created in Stockholm in 2013, where they were produced hits such as “First Love” by Jennifer Lopez and “Problem” by Ariana Grande.

Post by: j.fco.morales on June 30, 2015, 03:56:15 PM
It's not an instant chorus. But it works.

I'm sure the glissandos in the chorus were Max's idea, after Shellback's using in almost every song.

Love the production.

Post by: B Steady on June 30, 2015, 09:04:42 PM
I can't remember another song that has an instrumental PRE-chorus. And it's so amazing how they left it out before the last chorus and put it at the very end of the song instead - simply awesome! Just listened to it again through headphone and it's so good that it just made me smile :)

Imagine if Max Martin was something like David Guetta or Avicii - then this instrumental would've been the perfect base for a Max Martin feat. Taylor Swift, Katy Perry & Adam Lambert song :D

Thank you to everyone involved. I love it!

Turnaround said it-this is a katy perry song

If you see it as more of a drop than a prechorus it makes more sense. This is kind of a softcore spinnin
release.

The drop/instrumental before the chorus reminds me a little bit of a guitar part in Girls Aloud's Graffiti My Soul.

I think this one was written for Ariana.
Sounds a bit like Bang Bang to me, which was also originally written for Ariana.

I like some songs, but I think she needs to define herself as an artist.
Which is what happens often to artists who don't write their songs.

Same with Selena Gomez: it could be anyone.

Stars and Cool For The Summer are by far the best songs.

So far "Lionheart" is my favourite song. Such a great anthem. Ina Wroldsen is so gifted.

I checked the album booklet.

Laleh seems to be a superwoman. She does it all. Write, sing, many (also not standard) instruments, arrange, produce - you name it - incredible talent!

Btw - why is she at MXM and not Wolf Cousins? I could not take a photo of the booklet but the credits are pretty interesting.

On first listen the first 1/2 of the album is pretty good but then it falters and you end up not knowing exactly who she is, what she feels or what she stands for. But I gather from interviews she has an interesting story to tell so you wish the album would dig deeper. I'm gonna listen to it again though. So far I feel Selena s album is better (never thought it'd be that way, Demi is the strongest singer but that's not enough)

agreed. her vocals are atrocious. live and in the studio. terrible vocal production. the best song next to CFTS is Lionheart. but Demi's voice just isn't right for most/all of these songs. she strains and wails and it's not pleasant.

Rami Yacoub, Carl Falk, Savan Kotecha and Alexander Kronlund Is Being Sued For Allegedly Copying Song "Stars" from Sleigh Bells' 2010 song "Infinity Guitars."

The suit (https://www.scribd.com/document/321904188/Stars) filed Monday in a California federal court.

Producers Carl Falk and Rami Yacoub:

We did not use any samples in Demi Lovato’s song ‘Stars.’ Demi was also not involved with the production. She only wrote top line

Interesting. Now we know that Carl Falk resided in the UK and Rami in LA.

Also:

It's funny that in times that every songwriter claims that they do not earn enough money, when it comes to infringments the so called "damages" are so ridicously high.

She didn't take the time to evolve, it seems like Confident 2.0 without the producers that made good that album. In my opinion, it's a rush.

It's not a bad thing at all, but reminds me a lot of her.

And, the songs are way to different to each other... to me, this is like have no idea about where to go.

In case you don't know who Keyshia Cole is.
